With this 3,500sqm facility located in Singapore's Seletar Aerospace Park, Safran Helicopter Engines Asia triples its industrial capacity to support Safran Helicopter engines in the region.

The event was celebrated in the presence of Guest-of-Honour Mr. Lim Kok Kiang, Assistant Managing Director of Singapore Economic Development Board and H.E. Mr. Benjamin Dubertret, Ambassador of France to Singapore.

The facility integrates a state of the art maintenance centre qualified for Arrius, Arriel and Makila variants, a training centre for maintenance courses, as well as a 400 sqm warehouse.

"This new facility represents Safran's first major investment in Seletar Aerospace Park and is a significant addition to the growing rotorcraft cluster at the Park," said Mr. Lim.

Established in Singapore for the last 25 years, this relocation marks an important development of Safran Helicopter Engines Asia services. Conscious of the fast evolution in its surrounding market, Safran is strengthening its footprint in the region with a commitment to long term investment driven by one paramount objective: to better serve its growing customer base and the recently signed Support By the Hour agreements.

MHS Aviation Berhad, Malaysia's largest civil helicopter operator, has been working with Safran Helicopter Engines since 1991. "Our fleet has been supported by Safran Helicopter Engines Asia for more than 25 years, a quarter century during which we were able to rely on Safran expertise and proximity. We are confident that this successful relationship will continue to last into the future." testified Mr. Mohsein Ma'som, MHS Executive Director.

Safran Helicopter Engines Asia supports more than 1,000 engines spread over 18 countries including (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, South-Korea, Taiwan, Indian subcontinent, etc) and employs 65 people.
